Philip Phillips won American Idol 11 on Wednesday, May 23, 2012. He has been making the rounds to talks shows and other TV programs since Thursday.
Philip dropped by to visit Access Hollywood. He had Idol musical director Michael Orland and another guitar player with him to perform “Home,” which is his coronation song and winner’s single.
You can see the Access Hollywood video of Phillips’s “Home” performance below. By the way, shortly after he won, “Home” skyrocketed up to #1 in iTunes. Last I checked, it is still there. He has had more than 5 songs in the Top 100, as well.
This peformance has some good soul and nice phrasing. Even Philip says he is not the best singer. But he was the best song picker in the finale. While he probably would have won American Idol, anyway, it certainly helped to know more about music than Jessica.
